APC postpones Oyo presidential campaign rally over fuel, naira scarcity



All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its presidential campaign rally slated for today  in Oyo State.

Disclosing this in a statement on Monday, the party’s spokesperson in Oyo, Olawale Sadare,  said the decision was taken over the “crises” tied to the naira scarcity and petrol shortage, adding  that the party will give the president time to address the concerns raised over the issues.

“We need to allow President MuhammaduBuhari to work around the situation and ensure that normalcy returns, particularly as it concerns fuel and currency notes crises.

“At Oyo APC, we were convinced that it was necessary to go ahead with the event in order not to play into the hands of some antidemocratic forces who do not want the general elections to hold.

“We regret to announce the indefinite postponement of our presidential rally earlier slated for Tuesday.

“‘The decision was taken in consideration of the prevailing challenges facing the nation.”

He also said the party will let the public know the new date as soon as the decision is taken, even as the party also urged its loyalists to remain calm, and expressed optimism of victory in the general election.

Recall that there have been protests in parts of the country,  including Oyo State,  over the scarcity of new naira notes and petrol shortage.

However, amid the development, President MuhammaduBuhari has asked for some days to take a “major decision” on the naira note scarcity.
